Tell Me What to Read: Fall 2019

Do you know what I love more than finding a good book myself? Reading a good book that was recommending to me by a friend.


I got this idea from Janssen over at Everyday Reading and wanted to give it a try. A couple of times a year she asks her blog readers to recommend books for her to read. She then picks three, one to read each month for the next three months.

How it works is you give me a title and I’ll pick 2-3 books from your recommendations to read from now until the end of 2019.

I love this idea because I love finding new authors and new books to read. I’d love something fun (not super heavy right now) but I’m up for almost any genre. I love non-fiction, YA contemporary, romance, and fantasy!

So. Go! Hit me with all of your book recommendations and I can’t wait to see what you tell me to read!

  1. Some of the best books I’ve read this year: Circe by Madeline Miller, Becoming by Michelle Obama (nonfiction), Refugee by Alan Gratz (a heavy but important topic so maybe not for right now!), Sadie by Courtney Summers (YA and I highly recommend it on audiobook!), the Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy (YA).

    1. Adding all of these (minus the two I’ve read) to my list to read! I may pick one of these to read sooner rather than later!

  2. I haven’t been able to read lately, but I have "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck" on my reading list! I’ve heard nothing but amazing reviews about it!

    1. I’ve heard good things about that one too!

  3. The first title that comes to mind is The Memory Keeper’s Daughter! I read it a while ago, and absolutely loved it!

    1. I haven’t heard much about this one, but adding it to my list!

  4. Oooh I love this idea so much! Okay, gosh, I have so many suggestions: "Caraval" series, "Red Queen" series, "Late Bloomers’ Club," "5 Feet Apart," "Crazy Rich Asians" series, "Spin the Dawn," "Paper Towns," "Shiver" series, aaaall the "Harry Potter" books!

    1. OOOO so many good suggestions (well I assume because I’ve heard about a lot of these but I haven’t actually read them yet!) Thank you!

  5. The best book I recently read was "Working on Yourself Doesn’t Work" by Shya and Ariel Kane. Such a life changer with a dose of good humor! I also loved The Genius by Theodore Drexler and Extraordinary, Ordinary People by Condoleeza Rice.

    1. Awesome! Adding these to my list! Thank you!

  6. I currently have the everyday Millionaire book to read. Can’t wait to get started. Always nice to have some sort of Reading group locally t be a part of too.

  7. 1 A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

    2 Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum

    3 Even if I fall by Abigail Johnson

    4 Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett

    1. All of these are on my list! I need to read them ASAP!
